Christian Book Award Contest!
Book Awards bring instant credibility, and having an award seal on your book cover makes your book stand out!                     Become an 'Award Winning Christian Author' by entering your book in the only 'family friendly' book contest running!

 

Hi everyone!  The next Christian Book Awards Contest is 1 July 2024! To enter see the link below! Upcoming Christian Book Awards Presentation Ceremonies are 25 May 2024 and 22 June 2024! 

WHY THIS CONTEST IS DIFFERENT THAN ALL THE REST: This is a very simple book award contest. Your book is judged by two award-winning Christians and you get the higher of the two scores for GOLD, SILVER, BRONZE, or NO AWARD. We don't judge authors against other authors, we judge books based on the clearly published standard below. We know award-winning when we see it - because the judges - Mr. Rich Collins (Award-winning Christian Author and movie maker with 4 movie awards and 12 book awards) and Ms. Jennifer Lusong (Award-winning Christian Illustrator with 4 illustration awards) are award-winning multiple times! This is the difference.  Your work judged against the standards below = Your award level! 

PURPOSE:  The purpose of the Christian Book Award Contest is to recognize authors of all ages who publish ‘Christian family friendly’ books and graphic novels for Christians to read and enjoy. America needs to start encouraging and rewarding those who produce wholesome entertainment.  

CATEGORIES YOU CAN ENTERThere are 5 categories you can enter are: 1) Graphic Novel / Comic / Picture Book; 2) For young kids to read / Elementary School; 3) For kids to read / Middle School;  4) For Teens to read broken down into Fiction and Non-Fiction, 5) For Adults to read broken down by Fiction and Non-Fiction! You can enter multiple categories if you want - you see some books with multiple awards!

RULES:  To enter the contest provide your $25 payment at the contest link below and then e-mail your book in ‘pdf’ or ‘word’ format to the e-mail address raeganandrjinspace@aol.com.  Entries will be judged by an award winning Christian author and filmmaker (Mr Rich Collins) and an award-winning Christian illustrator (Ms Jennifer Lusong)! Entries will be confirmed by return e-mail along with the date of your contest when we receive your entry and payment.  ‘Christian Book Awards’ contests will occur quarterly on 1 January, 1 April, 1 July, and 1 October of each year. Your entry will be entered in the next contest run.  So if you enter the contest on 15 May 2016, your book or graphic novel will be judged on 1 July 2016, and so on.  Determination of your award level (Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Honor) will be provided to you in an e-mail on the 1st day of the your contest month, respecfully.  So if you entered the 1 July 2016 contest, your notification of award will be made by e-mail on 1 July 2016.  We do not accept paper copies of books, only pdf or word format sent by e-mail; the reason is because the 2 judges live in different locations and to mail copies to different judges would make the cost to enter a paper copy too expensive, and we are trying to keep it as low as possible.  Decision of the judges is final, and no refunds will be provided under any circumstances. If your book is not accepted into the CBA your entry fee will be refunded.

STANDARDS FOR ENTRIES:

1) Only complete stories will be allowed to enter the contest and be judged.  We will not judge 'summaries' or 'half-finished' works.  Don't sweat it.  Just knuckle down and finish the story!  You can do it! 

2) Books can be previously published, there is no date limit of when it has to have been published or finished.  You could enter a book you did 5 years ago or yesterday.

3) Only 'Christian family friendly' stories will be allowed to enter and be judged.  The definition of ‘family friendly’ is that your book or graphic novel entry would be something you would not be embarrased to read with your Mom or Dad on one side, and your daughter or son on the other.  I am not going to give you a list of things that would not be 'family friendly' because little kids go on this site.  No entries with innapropriate material will be accepted or judged.  If an entry is submitted that is not 'family friendly' it will be returned with the money and pdf file.  Sorry folks, we don't want to judge anyone or anything, but this contest is to encourage writers and illustrators to produce 'family friendly' material.

4) Only stories in English will be accepted and judged.

5) Only stories from a Christian world view will be accepted and judged.

6) You do not have to have your story published yet.  Unpublished works can be entered and judged.

7) You do not have to have your story professionally done, we encourage independant and beginning authors to submit stories for grading.

AWARD LEVEL GUIDE TO HELP YOU:  

Gold: Front to back cover high quality whether written or graphic novel.  No spelling, punctuation errors. Professional cover. If graphic novel or picture book, colorful professional illustrations. A totally 'UNIGUE' and interesting story for that genre that is fully developed with characters the target audience will fall in love with. This level of entry is one a Christian would read over and over again and be one of their favorite books or series. Check the award winning free graphic novel download 'Mission to the 3 Suns' at this web site.  That's a Gold. Don't be intimidated though, this is not at the 'MARVEL COMIC' level. A professionally done comic at that level would be a Gold plus plus. We are not looking for that level to award a Gold to you. If God has given you that kind of talent awesome, and we will recognize it, but that is something that does not come along very often, and will not be required to get a Gold.  The basis for a Gold is a totally unique book from cover to cover, and a Christian reader who says after seeing and reading it: Wow, I have ever seen anything like that before, that is amazing! 

Silver:  A high quality, 'family friendly', Christian story with no spelling or punctuation errors, is a very interesting story, containing at least 1 new or interesting development unique to that genre that has never been done before, that a Christian kid or adult would read once, put down for a week or so, but eventually would want to read again. The basis for a Silver is a Christian who says wow, I have read alot of for example Amish Romances, or Westerns, but I have never seen one set in ????, or about ???? - Maybe the entire book is about the main character, say Stephanie, who finds her Grandmother's diary after her death, and she is reading and visualizing about how her Grandmother fell in love and got married - and the book really is about someone who is already gone to heaven, that would be unique. So basically for a Silver the standard is a story in a genre that has been written about, but has a unique twist!

Bronze: A solid quality 'family friendly' story with no spelling or punctuation errors that a beginning level author would write in an existing genre that a Christian kid or adult would read and find interesting and like it, but not list it as one of their favorites because it has no new features or twists. This level of book is a good achievement for a new author or illustrator in an existing genre but contains nothing new. This does not mean that you have not produced an award-worthy book, it just means that your Amish Romance or Western Adventure is the same as every other one that is on a Christian's bookshelf already.

NUMBER OF ENTRIES SUBMITTED HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH LEVELS AWARDED: If you produce and enter the contest with a family friendly graphic novel or book that is a GOLD you will get a GOLD.  If you produce a book or novel that is an HONOR level, that is what you will be awarded.  Your award has nothing to do with how many entries are received during a given quarter.  Next quarter we could have 5 GOLD and no other awards, or 1 of each, or no GOLD but 2 SILVER.  Rest assured, your level of award will not be downgraded because some very talented Christian submitted a 'MARVEL QUALITY COMIC' two days before you submitted your first kids story book.  

PUBLISHERS VERIFICATION: If an author submits a work indicating they are a 'Christian Book Award' winner, you can verify by contacting us we maintain a roster of the winners. 'Centauri' award winner,   

SPONSOR: The sponsor for this contest is Richard Collins, a multiple award-winning Christian filmmaker and author, registered 'artist/author' and 'home business' owner in the State of Virginia license #293309.
